Part of the Visitor Speaker series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
God has a great agenda for us, our family, our church, our city.
We are here for a greater purpose, the kingdom of god.
The season of the kingdom is coming, no one can stop it.
God will use you. God has something divine for you. He doesn't want to just save you, he has something divine for you.
2012 is the year that God will start pouring out his glory.
God doesn't bless you just when you are working, but also when we are sleeping. Loving god gracious god.
We are in the end times.
Physical muscle won't make you strong, your spiritual muscle will make you strong. Come to church to yield up spiritual muscle.
Out pouring of Holy Spirit not just for pastors, but for all people.
If you are in gods agenda, there is no fear.
We need the excellent spirit of god in our lives.
God is of just giving you salvation. He is giving us glory through the work of the only spirit.
When Jesus ascended, he did it leave us alone, he gave us his spirit. This is the sign: I have given them glory so that's they may be one as we are one: unity in their lives, hear,t mind, action. Among families. Among congregations, among the churches.
The highest level of unity is because of the glory of god.
Glory in original language=doxa, means dignity. God has invested dignity in your life! You will look at people in a different way as a result.
Story of Daniel.
When we have the glory of god, he gives us a humble heart. We don't have a problem with those who have pride.
Unity is the sign of one whom have the glory of god. Not about clothes, or money, but about god. If we unite together the world will see Jesus through us.
Second work of Holy Spirit like tsunami. Ezekiel.
When you get serious with god, you go deeper.
When you go deeper it gets harder to walk.
When you can't walk anymore, then you swim and follow Him.
If you want to finish well, then just swim and follow him. Swimming against the flow is hard.
Just like growing up. A baby, grow up, dad teaches you to walk, then to school. Because He loves you.
The safest place to be is in the river because all you can do is swim and follow him.
Do not give up, but get up and get going.
You are in a dangerous area if you think that you have options. You need to be in the river and follow him.
If you are facing the giant, you are being honoured by god. David facing the giant.

17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: (KJV)
22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: (KJV)
1Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. 2Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 3And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ancles. 4Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. 5Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. 6And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river. 7Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. 8Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. (KJV)
